In the establishing shot of the duct tape contest, John Phillip Sousa's "Liberty Bell" march can be heard playing in the background. The march is best known as the theme song to the British sketch comedy Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969). See more »

If You Hated It, You're Not a Fan of the Show. Period.
I don't normally write these, but I just watched the movie again last night and came here today, only to find a disgustingly negative review of the movie. Everyone is entitled to their opinion - hence my being able to write this - but I honestly don't understand how someone who is a self-proclaimed fan of the show can be that negative of the big screen debut.
I'm happy to say that I actually saw this in the theater. My parents and I, being huge fans of the show, drove from upstate New York into Canada to the nearest theater playing (about a 2 hour drive). I wasn't disappointed at all.
The script was exactly what I expected - all the usual Red Green-isms and Harold-isms, a few good lines from the supporting characters, and a healthy dose of heart mixed in. The physical comedy was... well, physical comedy! You either like it or you don't.
Granted, the plot was a little forced, but I didn't see the movie to see plot. I saw the movie to see my beloved Red Green characters on the big screen making me laugh. Upon repeated watching, I still laugh hard.
On a side note, my wife, who was only superficially familiar with show, loves the movie to no end. So it does extend to those not familiar with the show, even if it's in a small way.
Sure, it has it's problems, but it beats the pants off of most comedies being pumped out by Hollywood these days.
